Mare Nectaris and Rupes Altai

This is a more detailed image of the Mare Nectaris region. On the western edge of Mare Nectaris you can see three craters lying in a crooked row, Theophilus, Cyrillus and Catharina. West-southwest of Catharine you can see the brightly lit Altai Scarp rim with a total length of 480 Km. The �Rupes Altai� end at the crater Piccolomini in the south. On the southern rim of Mare Nectaris lies Fracastorius.
